Adding some larger shelves on the wall to the right might give some of the boxes a different home than window sills and the floor. With your current shelving you are only using small portions of each shelf. If you can, try adding additional shelves to each of your existing shelf units.

One of the biggest things I try to do is keep my main work surface as clutter free as possible.
** First I would relocate power supplies, chargers, soldering irons, extra tire, battery, engine, etc… items to the adjacent shelves to the workbench so they are still easily accessible but not on the bench. Remember, you can always do things like move the soldering iron and holder onto the workbench for times when you are actually soldering but when not in use it can sit on a shelf.

** Second, have little spots for big take off items on the adjacent shelves such as bodies, tires, engine, etc… That way when you get home from the track and start wrenching on your buggy you can take off the bulky items right away and put them in a good spot. That way they do not take up real estate on your workbench every time you work on your car. I also have spots on my shelves for every car I have so they don’t have to be stored in the hauler bags or perched on a stack of boxes. Wouldn’t you know it would be that stack of boxes that I would need to get into the next time I’m looking for parts.

** Third, the idea about the pegboard is a good one because of easy way to organize replacement parts, take a quick inventory of stuff you are getting low on, and easy access to items you use often.

My old workbench was made of five 2x10” lumber 6’ long sitting next to each other. I laid all five on the floor and using two 2x4’s I attached the five larger boards together, flipped it over and placed it on top of 2-drawer filing cabinets on either end to store manuals, printouts, and other cool small stuff I wanted to hang on to. It was so sturdy I was able to put a bench vice at one end and a small drill press at the other end.

I am envious of all the gear you have! Good luck and happy New Year!!
These are all awsome ideas!!! I am off tell the 4th so I am working on it. Thanks for the input!!!

It looks like every single car is resting on its suspension/tires.

You need some car stands.

The biggest problem I see is that there doesn't appear to be a beer fridge. Now, if you have one within close range it is fine...

Note that empty beer cans/bottles make good containers for old shock/diff fluids. NOTE: DO NOT CONFUSE THE USED FLUIDS WITH YOUR BEVERAGE!

Thats cool Jason! If I was a single man believe that I would have a entire house set up for rc dealings.

Instead I am confined to the Speed Shop...but it is kinda roomy.

I think you got a nice setup going on there. One thing I would change however would be those stools haha. make those long hours working on the car easier with a comfortable office chair

I personally disagree with this- a firmer seating surface makes it easier to be precise and also exert needed force.

I actually work on my stuff at my buddies house... we built a workbench at about "bar height" (it puts it at the proper height to work STANDING, for when you need to exert some force like when removing stubborn bolts holding the motor mount in the chassis...) and use barstools for seats. Besides... it fits the general idea that we generally have a beer or 6 while working on our stuff.

That workbench is STOUT too... you could rebuild a big-block Ford on it without a whimper. (3/4" plywood top, 2x6" frame and legs, finished with polyurethane) Maybe a little overkill for RC stuff, but it isn't going to "give up" in a short time of wrenching on your stuff.

Same here Alan, but least you have the Speed Shop, I started out with half the garage now I have been sent to just a small corner of the garage. Amazing the more I get the less space she lets me have lol.
